Quote Of The Day: Usher On His Sex Soundtrack

"Oh yeah, I have made love to a few of my songs. 'Love You Gently' is one of my favorites. Make her call you 'Daddy' when you put that one on." -- Usher [AHN]…

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of July 2nd 2008

MUSIC Vanessa Hudgens Identified “Basically what we’re going to do is dance,” Vanessa Hudgens promises in the song Sneakernight. And she delivers on her first solo album Identified. Just like her claim to fame, High School Musical, you’ll definitely dance to this alone in your room and hide the case from your boyfriend. But poptastic…

Obama’s iPod

Your musical tastes say a lot about you, blah, blah, blah, so it's kind of a big deal that in the current issue of Rolling Stone, Barack Obama divulges some of what's on his iTunes. Obama says he has "pretty eclectic tastes," and his playlist includes the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Earth, Wind & Fire,…

Top Five Menstrual Songs

I took a lot of women's studies classes in college and even spelled women as "womyn" for a while, but I've never quite understood menstrual art. I have a lil' soft spot for all the artists on this list, but it was loads of humorous fun pulling the lyrics for our Top Five Menstrual Songs:…

The Daily Hotness: Justin Nozuka

This morning I was watching VH1 on accident (I am more of a MTV kind-of-girl) and this video from some dude named Justin Nozuka came on the tube. He sings those kind of songs that you sing around a beach bonfire -- like Jack Johnson or Ben Harper-type jams. I went to college in Santa…

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of June 3rd 2008

Goddamn you half-emo guys, you do it to me every time. To follow up the poptastic single that makes even my vegetarian roommate want a spoonful of Pork and Beans, Weezer has a new classic, cheap, and colorful record- The Red Album. Sigh, Rivers Cuomo may not beThe Greatest Man Whoever Lived, but he's still…

The Jonas Brothers Vs. Hanson: What’s The Diff?

Everywhere I look, those dang Jonas Brothers are there, torturing me with memories. Memories of what, you may ask? Hanson. That painfully annoying threesome of brothers from the '90s who performed that song "Mmm Bop". Just like the Jonas Brothers, the young one was sweet and adorable, the middle one was the one the girl…

Get Your Rocks Off: Ohbijou’s “Frisky On Land & Water” Playlist

The perfect Sunday, in my opinion, would involve eating a delicious breakfast of freshly made waffles, exchanging a few kisses, and reading the newspaper (all without leaving bed, of course). The soundtrack to this perfect Sunday morning would be the Toronto band Ohbijou. The seven-piece group plays delightful music that's quiet but not too quiet…

We’ve Still Got It All On Tape

Nothing says love like the hum of an analog mix tape crackling through the songs you like to make out to. Sigh. You know it’s hot and heavy when a dude takes the time to tape sounds to seduce you. Like the frail technology that can get easy chewed up by a player, most relationshi…

Let’s Make A Muxtape, Shall We?

This week, I decided to get a little CRAZY with our Muxtape and uploaded 12 songs that has S-E-X in the title. Scandalous, no? I cannot promise this will be a mixtape to accompany actual love-making, but I hope you enjoy it for the next five days, nonetheless. And please oh please, create your own!

Girl Crush Goes A Little Limp: Agyness Deyn

I've had a thing for the model Agyness Deyn for a while now, ever since she got that haircut, started wearing a hat like Andie in Pretty In Pink, and went out on the town in this party dress. But I was worried when I read she would be recording a song with indie band…

Add Them To Your Playlist: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

One of our favorite groups right now is Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, who played backup on Amy Winehouse's Back To Black -- but regardless of their association with the troubled neo-soul singer, The Dap Kings are incredible in their own right. Check out the video for their new single "Tell Me" above!

Let’s Make A Muxtape, Shall We?

Muxtape is this new social networking site where you create a profile and can upload 12 songs like a mixtape. You can then add people to your list of favorites and listen to their playlists and they can listen to yours. We started a Frisky Muxtape page and have uploaded 12 songs with "love" i…

He Says/She Says: Santogold’s “L.E.S. Artistes”

This week, Jon and I wanted to listen to Scarlett Johansson's cover of Tom Waits' "Falling Down." He would make comments about ScarJo's hotness. I would make comments about how she sounds like a man. It was going to be great. But Jon must download a lot of porn on his computer or something, because…

Scarlett Johansson Churns Out Her First Single

Catherine and I disagree on very few things -- the musical talent of The Counting Crows, meat, this song, and perhaps the notion of Scarlett Johansson fancying herself a popstar all together. This is the video for the first single off Scarlett's upcoming album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, in which most of the song…

Get Your Rocks Off: The Heavy’s Playlist Of Songs For The Pissed And Broken-Hearted

This British soul band has been described as sounding "like Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Pusherman’ resurrecting Led Zeppelin and the exiled spirit of Cassius Clay" making it hard "not to fantasize about Pam Grier fighting off her pimp with a broken bottle." Heavy, indeed. Their debut record, Great Vengeance & Furious Fire came out in the U.S.

Sex And The City And Fergie, A Good Combination?

A lot has changed since Sex and the City went off the air four years ago, including the show's opening music. Written for the movie, "Labels & Love" is inspired by the original, lyric-less ditty and sung by Fergie. "It’s an entirely new song with lyrics, but it has the Sex and the City theme…

Madonna’s Hard Candy Gets Leaked

A bunch of tracks from Madonna's not-yet-released new album, Hard Candy, were leaked this weekend. What do you think of her latest effort? We think a lot of the tracks seem to be more of a Justin Timberlake/Timbaland show than a Madge-spectacular, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. [Oh No They Didn't]…

Slideshow: Dynamic Music Duos

Amelia and I have been listening to She & Him non-stop in the Frisky office, and we realized that a lot of great music is the product of girl-guy duos. These are some of our favorites.

He Says/She Says: Usher’s “Love In This Club”

Usher is a five-time Grammy-winner, a partial owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and a master of catchy songs and slick -- maybe too slick -- dance moves. My friend Geoff and I watch the video for his new song "Love In This Club" and try to figure out what's going on. Videos can be so…
